Rescuing My Son Down The Rabbit Hole of Chronic Lyme Disease
by Lori Dennis
Pub Date 15 Nov 2016
Chronic Lyme disease is a complicated, confusing, and terrifying abyss—a black hole of human suffering, conflicting views, widespread corruption, and unrelenting medical navigation. Lyme Madness chronicles the author’s and adult son’s medical odyssey while capturing the current landscape of immeasurable suffering, twisted politics and medical madness that ensues worldwide. It provides a platform for the many voices of chronic Lyme sufferers, caregivers, and activists, along with the very few doctors and politicians all fighting for awareness, support and justice around the globe. It is a bold testament to the undeniable existence of this medical nightmare where millions are suffering and few are listening. The voices and pleas for medical acknowledgment of this widely negated disease are powerful, compelling, and a clarion call-to-action for those in power to put an end to the political roadblocks that have kept chronic Lyme disease in the shadows for more than 40 years.
"Lori Dennis has transformed her personal experience of chronic Lyme and coinfections into a road map for navigating the complications of this medical and political disease.She also provides powerful examples of the resilience, innovation and growing power of those who reject these human rights abuses. This is a memoir of a mother fighting for the survival of her son and she well understands how the madness embraced by the CDC Lyme policy is deadly for those living with chronic Lyme." – Jenna Luche-Thayer, Lyme activist, former Senior Advisor at the United Nations and other organizations
